Minigolf Rockets

A look at some rocket obstacles from our Crazy Golf travels.

My recent blog post about the Crazy Golf course in Ilfracombe included some snaps of one of the most unique rocket obstacles we've seen on a course.

What a ship!

It looked like quite a tricky hole to play

It reminded me we'd also see another quirky rocket-ship on the Crazy Golf course at Hesketh Park in Southport.

It looks like it's been on some tough missions!

But the none of the rockets have anything on the one we saw at the Crazy Golf course on Canvey Island in 2009!

The rocket is listing more than it is lifting off!

My favourite rocket obstacle is the nice one on hole 6 at the Crazy Golf course in Prestatyn.

The Original Crazy Golf on South Parade in Skegness is home to a very angular rocket. That hole is also number six.

Probably not the first minigolf rocket obstacle, but it is on a hole on the site of England's first Crazy Golf course

There's a rocket on The Masters Crazy Golf course in Southport too.

We haven't played that many space-themed courses on our travels, mostly because there aren't a lot of them.

Have you seen an interesting rocket obstacle on a miniature golf course? Are they your favourite type of obstacle? Do let us know.
